The Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) is Australia's largest, oldest and most popular sporting venue. The MCG has hosted plenty of international cricket, including the first-ever Test and the 1992 World Cup final, countless VFL/AFL Grand Finals, the 1956 Olympic Games and 2006 Commonwealth Games. It will also host the final of ICC Cricket World Cup 2015. Other sporting spectacles include FIFA World Cup soccer qualifiers, rugby league home and away matches and State of Origin and international rugby union clashes. Apart from its sporting events, the MCG has also witnessed many blockbuster music concerts, and even Pope John Paul II held a mass there when he visited Melbourne in 1986. The MCG has a total capacity of 100,024 people, comprising 95,024 seats and 5000 standing room spaces. The stadium also houses the National Sports Museum, which includes some of the most priceless pieces of memorabilia in Australian sporting history.

The MCG is a must visit! You need to watch AFL or cricket here! I have watched the state of origin and AFL here and the atmosphere was amazing.

My husband and I have always wanted to attend an AFL Game at the MCG. We are from Sydney. Our dream came true last weekend. The atmosphere at the G is unbelievable. The ground was so easy to get to, the food reasonably priced and the type of people that were there made it an event not just a game.

Easy to get to, well worth the atmosphere and cultural experience for the overseas traveler. Food has improved, but don't expect fine dining.

No trip to Melbourne complete without a visit to the MCG. We watched a local AFL game along with around 50,000 locals - great experience.

The C in MCG stands for cricket - but it is football that every year sees about 100,000 fans attend the Football Grand Final in September. During the year the venue stages other great events such as cricket Tests against international teams. Concerts with international artists, etc. But the history of the great venue is presented within the museum and... More
